Lewis County Water Alliance Update: County Approves Moratorium That Would Stop Crystal Geyser Project - The Chronicle
VOTE: Move Reverses Earlier Decision Allowing Water Extraction, Food and Beverage Manufacturing Permits in Response to Crystal Geyser Opponents
The Lewis County Board of Commissioners voted Monday morning to impose a moratorium on permits seeking water extraction in rural Lewis County and certain standalone food and beverage manufacturing applications.
Lewis County Water Alliance has received so much support from other towns & regions seeking to halt commercial water interests that Washington Water Alliance has been created.

TES PTO’s Brooke Sellards Acosta: Seeds and pollinators.
The TES Kids Garden is, above all, a learning garden. So what may appear a little "messy" actually provides many lessons and appreciation for the critters that inhabit our garden and make food production possible.
We will start saving seeds on Thursday! In the meantime they are being thoroughly enjoyed.
TES PTO’s Ashley Jacobson posted: TES Kids Closet
This year I have took over some major responsibilities to our kids closet in our elementary school. As the school year approaches, I want to make sure that it is fully stocked for the items that we distribute to the kids in need. Over the summer I have been on the look out for garage sale left overs and Goodwill finds. I have found some items, but know that I will need much more.
I was hoping when you are replacing your kids' clothes with new school year purchases you could set aside some items to help the kids in our school. Whether it's because your child fell in a puddle, went down a wet slide, or their shoe fell apart, I want to be able to replace it so they can continue their day uninterrupted.
If you are willing to help, the sizes we mainly need are:
Boys Shorts/Sweats sizes 5-10
Girls shorts/sweats/leggings 5-12
In dire need of athletic shoes for boys and girls sizes 13-3.
If you are able to donate, I will be willing to come and meet you. Thank you so much for your generosity.

Lewis County Water Alliance - We are a citizens group in Randle, WA fighting to keep Crystal Geyser from bottling and exporting our water. Our goal is to protect our water and environment for our families, our farms, our fish, and our future.
It is going to take some Big Change in order to keep Big Water corporations out of the Big Bottom and out of Washington State.
Update: Lewis County Water Alliance has received so much support from other towns & regions seeking to halt commercial water interests that Washington Water Alliance has been created.
